ninety-nine percent

It is almost finished, and I actually got really excited about it earlier today, as I was getting rained on for the fourth time in just as many hours. When things started to work, and all of the pieces were getting put into place, I really felt pretty happy about it. Now whether or not that was just part of the satisfaction or completing something, or that I actually like my project, is up for debate, but either way, I was happy about something. I purchased some tie-down straps to temporarily aleviate the need for a tensile cable while I couldn't find the turnbuckle I needed, but on Monday, Prof. Maze's wife pointed me in the direction of a shop called Florida Fastners that carries exactly the part I need, so the end is very near.


I just realized that of all these pictures I don't have one that is of the portion completed as of this moment. You can see the whole thing in the movie, but it is a significant download at almost 20Mb. I need to learn a lot about video compression before I start putting too many videos up here, because these things are going to take up a lot of space.
